If you read the Allen Edmonds thread on SF you'd think they are the second coming.

This is not accurate.

Oh man junglethug, I too ordered that red only to realize that it is quite red. I will go for a dark burgundy. Nice pickup on both Hobers.

That is a suit. Zegna Mila...courtesy of JRD.

Okay, pass on AE.

Thank you all. I am putting a stoppage to my purchases temporarily. But just wanted to show how much this thread has helped me. 

And there's nothing below from NM.

In my opinion, AE is a great option when on sale or purchasing seconds. Better yet, seconds on sale. I just picked up a pair of Park Avenue (Brooks Bros. version) seconds for $149 during the recent outlet sale. I can't even find the flaw that caused them to be seconds. Are they as nice as some of the baller brands? No way, but I'm just starting out, so AE seconds are great in my mind. I'll build up my shoe wardrobe with 2-3 more pairs of different styles, then maybe it will be time to move on to something nicer and pricier. I don't think I'd ever buy AE firsts at full retail. Not many people here do, considering how easily and often they are had for much less.

Breaking-in my new Park Avenues the other day:



I'm fine with the placement of the toe cap and think the Park Ave is a fairly attractive design. Need to add a little shine to mine.

I appreciate the link but you haven't put in your payment info so they can't send it to me. :lol:

I am still a project. Don't defund it when it's riding high. 

Any rules on french cuff shirts and cufflings that I should know about? I need one for the wedding. 

 

Thanks

I've been slowly acquiring some new stuff as I learn a bit on here. I'm ready to start tackling shoes. I grabbed a pair of burgundy wholecut Lodger's from Spoo because they were a good price - I know they probably aren't the best place to begin. Other than those, I'm starting from scratch. From what I've read here, Meermin's seem to be the best bang-for-your-buck at my price point. I really like the dark brown double monks, but again, I realize probably not the best place to begin. Can someone give me a list of which pairs to start with?

You may want to start by telling us what you need it for. Office? Casual work environment? etc.

Nothing other than I enjoy wearing suits, etc. I work in journalism, my office has a convenience store policy. As long as I'm wearing shoes and a shirt, I'm fine. Regardless of what they look like.

post #3329 of 37533
For wearing with suits, I'd start with black captoe oxfords and dark brown captoe oxfords, with some broguing on the latter. Then maybe something a bit more casual, like a sleek derby in medium brown or burgundy.
